The 62-year-old man was taken to hospital with a severed right ear, as well as lacerations and bite marks to his chest and arms, Det. Markowski said. The 46-year-old bystander was also admitted with lacerations and bites to his arms.

Oliver was taken to the same hospital for psychiatric evaluation and has since been charged with eight counts of assault and two counts of reckless endangerment.

Her dogs were removed to the city's Center for Animal Care And Control.

"They will be placed on a 10-day rabies observation hold after which they will be evaluated by the Department of Health to determine next steps," a center spokeswoman, Kay Hansen, told BuzzFeed News.
